Built To Spill @ Pitchfork: Making Friends

builttospillpitchfork@AndyShore Built To Spill is one of the few bands playing at Pitchfork this weekend that I have actually listened to. Zack interviewed Doug Martsch prior to Langerado last summer. He told Zack he wanted to start a drum jam, so that he could go check out the Roots, who shared a set time with Built To Spill. After seeing Built To Spill at Pitchfork last night, I have to say, I’d still go see the Roots. That’s not to say that they didn’t put on a great show at Pitchfork.

Built To Spill offers up blistering, driven, guitar heavy indie rock. They even had the hipsters bobbing their heads, some even dancing. After half a day on my feet at Pitchfork, I needed to sit down. I found @andlaurasays with some new friends, on the side of the crowd. Apparently, they were drawn to her hummus and pita chips.

At first, it was new friend, Mike, sitting with @andlaurasays, but soon his very drunken friend, Damen, wandered over. Damen sat down and Mike began rubbing his back, explaining that sometimes he needs back rubs. “He’s kinda like a six-year-old. He gets cranky if he hasn’t eaten.”

Before too long, Damen was half passed out on the ground. Sometimes he would reach up at his friend, or @andlaurasays. A passerby almost tripped and landed on top of Damen. Sensing danger, he repositioned to put his head under Mike’s knees. Mike was sitting with his knees up and both feet in front of him, which put Damen right about in his taint … or ball sack as their friend Charlotte pointed out. People watching might be a saving grace at Pitchfork for this guy.
